According to MovieWeb, Jay talked to the Australian Herald Sun about the possible casting of Teresa Palmer for the female lead in the newest Mad Max film:
Actor Jay Baruchel told reporters that Palmer has been cast. “”She gets to work with him, and she’s (going to be) doing Mad Max 4 with Miller,” Baruchel said, adding that, “She’s the main chick in Fury Road.”
Jay Baruchel delivers a breakout performance as a Montreal teenager who thinks he’s the reincarnation of Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky in the new Canadian comedy, The Trotsky.
Just don’t try telling that to the childhood actor-turned-adult star, whose credits over the past 15 years include notable supporting roles in Million Dollar Baby, Knocked Up and Tropic Thunder.
“Every year for the past 10 years I have been the one to watch — and next year’s the year,” Baruchel, 27, says with a sigh during a hectic day of TIFF interviews at a Toronto hotel.
“I mean, I don’t know, it’s a really good movie. I like it. ”
Turns out Baruchel and The Trotsky’s screenwriter-director Jacob Tierney go way back, and grew up together as kids on the same street in Montreal.
He even had Tierney’s mother as a substitute teacher several times and was in theatre class with Tierney’s younger sister.
Barcuhel’s little sister Taylor has a cameo role as a high school student in The Trotsky and his oldest friend, Ricky Mabe, has a large supporting role.
